In this study, the components of FP were profiled and characterized using HPLC-ESI-MS2. A total of 58 compounds were identified according to their fragmentation features in IT-TOF-MS and IT-MS2, including 13 phenolic acids, 17 flavonoids, 21 lignans, 2 alkaloids, and 5 other compounds. Among them, the identities of 8 compounds were explicitly confirmed by comparing them with standard compounds, and their contents were determined. Our study provided a comprehensive understanding of the diverse chemical profile in FP, and the approach we developed is useful for the analysis of other TCM formulas.

Primary astrocyte culture is an alternative method to study these cells in an isolated system: in their physiologic and pathologic states. Cell lines are often used as an astrocyte model, since they are easier and faster to manipulate and cost less. However, there are a few studies evaluating the ...

KinzigAbstractKetogenic diets (KDs) are high-fat, low-carbohydrate diets that have been used therapeutically for decades, most notably for the treatment of epilepsy and diabetes. Recent data, however, suggest that KD may impart protective effects on mood disorders. The current experiments test the hypothesis that KDs can protect from stress-induced symptoms of mood disorders. To test this, we assessed behavioral and neuroendocrine effects of KD in male and female Long Evans rats. Animal...
